Imagine a world where woman can no longer have kids and the extinction of the human race is a terrifying threat. This is the setting for dystopian drama The Lottery, a new pilot commissioned for Lifetime. With the fate of humanity hanging in the balance, a scientist successfully fertilizes 100 eggs and the government instigates a lottery to decide on the surrogates.

Planet Terror star has been signed up to play the brilliant fertility specialist, while (American Horror Story) will play Kyle, a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born in the country.

I'm a big fan of dystopian sci-fi and while the premise to The Lottery certainly has a hint of Children of Men about it, this could well be a show to keep an eye on.
